Got my bead on..

My Allied Rock-A-Thon beadlock wheel, that is..





And yes, I painted the lock ring.

Edit: So I realized I forgot to post the wheel specs..

They are 17x8 with 3.5" backspacing.

I got the tire mounted on the wheel. I'll look into balancing it later. Besides, its main purpose is as a trail spare, so I'm not too concerned about having it balanced.

Haha.. nah dood, I only got the spare. Lord knows if I had the means (funds) to get a whole set, not only would I BUT I'd also do some other things to the truck.
